Title: CRF230F 2006 Sticky 3rd gear....
Post by: Kawaki on August 18, 2013, 10:45:56 am
Hi all,
Apparently this is a common problem on some models ,I'm not sure.
First and second is smooth, but when changing to 3rd it battles to engage, and the rest is all fine.
On lower revs (slow speed) it selects perfectly, but don't try and ride it harder.
I've replaced the oil using only Castrol Actevo according to spec (1.2L) checked clutch cable play correct and gear selector nice and tight ( no play). It didn't have any effect.
My first one , 05 model, never had this problem.
Could anybody please give me some 'raad'  ???
Thanks in advance....

Hey Dux, I was SO looking forward to eendekuil paid and everything , and then I go and tear
my ankle ligaments. When I'm mobile again I'll make a plan to get it to you, if I haven't managed
to solve it by then. Thanks for the interest  :thumleft:...and enjoy eendekuil  :'(
